One of two basic types of funding instruments for pensions or employee benefits, in which responsibility for plan assets is vested in a trustee. The other type is known as an insured plan, whose assets are held by a life insurance company, typically under a group annuity contract that guarantees payment of benefits. A combination plan makes use of both approaches, with some contributions going to a trustee and the remainder to an insurance company.
